Writing Can Be Murder

Why Federal holidays should be banned:

They screw with my writing routine.

Yesterday was a holiday in the US.  An excuse for banks to close, postal carriers to put their feet up, and certain businesses to say “what the hell” and give employees a three day weekend.

I’m sure a lot of people thought it was a great day. I’m not one of them. The holiday, combined with the fact that Mother Nature decided to make the day freakishly warm for a day in February on the East Coast, screwed up my writing routine.

The two places that I normally write at were FILLED. I’m talking no spots in the lot, better call the fire department to make sure they’re not over capacity, kind of filled. With happy, yakking people. They ruined my writing day.

I would have gone to bask in the relative quiet of the library, but it was closed. Why?

You guessed it — the federal holiday.

  1. Tell me about it. I always thought it was dumb to give people a day off in which they could get those things done they don’t normally have time to do when they work, and then allow all those places they need to go to do them to be closed.

    The only non-holiday holiday I really approve of is the Day After Thanksgiving. That day rocks for the very reason that it is not a holiday at all, yet most people get the day off. That’s cool, but the rest of these piddly little holidays are just nuts.
